I find absolutely nothing wrong with posing for photos for cash. Gore is a private citizen and not a govt. official. A former pres. or vp can do anything he wants in my book. The Japanese paid Reagan a million dollars for a short speech and appearance AFTER he left office. During the 2002 campaign, Bush raised money for other candidates with photo ops (unlike Clinton, outside the white house) around the country if you coughed up 10 to 20 thousand dollars. A photo with Cheaney cost only 2k, a photo with Doro (W's sister) cost only 500 dollars. An acquaintance of mine coughed up 50 grand to get his and his wife's picture taken with Clinton in the White House and also got a small piece of regulatory "undersight" or "overlooking" that was probably worth about half a million dollars. That was wrong, but a former vp should be allowed to do anything legal and this is 100% legal.

Disagree. Gore is a former VP who promotes himself as a future presidential candidate. Big difference.
